Motto: Thanks to Kyle for Gold | 1400 rep + Top 10 before 2019?
Do you need a monitor?
If not, what monitor(s) will you be using?
Will you overclock?
What exactly will the system be used for, what games, what else other than games?
You need a "mic", as in headset, or just a stand-alone mic?
800 USD for everything, including all peripherals required?

Just realised you updated the topic with the information needed instead of putting it in your reply, my bad. So $1200 for a system+monitor for an assortment of games, including AAA titles?

Don't get an i5-7500, Kaby Lake hasn't made sense since like March last year lol.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel - Core i5-8400 2.8GHz 6-Core Processor ($209.89 @ B&H)
CPU Cooler: CRYORIG - M9i 48.4 CFM CPU Cooler ($19.88 @ OutletPC)
Motherboard: Gigabyte - Z370P D3 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($114.49 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: Crucial - Sport LT 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Memory ($87.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($139.99 @ B&H)
Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB G1 Gaming Video Card ($336.17 @ PCM)
Case: Fractal Design - Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case ($86.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Power Supply: Corsair - CXM (2015) 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($46.99 @ Amazon)
Monitor: BenQ - BL2420PT 23.8" 2560x1440 60Hz Monitor ($229.00 @ B&H)
Total: $1271.39

You can drop the Cryorig M9i for now to save some money. You could get a Phanteks Eclipse P300 instead of the Meshify C to save $30 or so. Also, H310 and B360 motherboards should launch soon, which would let you save $40+ easily. You could get this monitor instead if you wanted;
pcpartpicker.com/product/wNcMnQ/l...or-25um58p
but if you don't like/want ultrawide, the BenQ 1440p monitor is the way to go. I just wouldn't be buying 16GB RAM at all right now unless you were spending $1500+ on a system, because RAM is just too over-priced. Another 8GB RAM would be the first thing I'd add though, once prices come back down. For GPU, everything is stupid over-priced in the US currently. So you're apparently not getting a mid ranged GPU for under $300(anyone remember when RX 480s were $170??!?!?!). Honestly, I'd just build the system without the GPU for now and wait until something comes in stock at an actual reasonable price($250ish for GTX 1060/RX 580). If you really need/want a GPU now though, do NOT pay more than $350 for a GTX 1060/RX 580. Alternatively, you could look at used GPUs, should be able to get a GTX 970 for <$175, which will perform pretty much on par with a GTX 1060/RX 580.
